What if the gnomes in your garden were freed from their boring, static lives, and allowed to go off on an adventure? Would they find excitement, or danger; would they be scared or thrilled?

Two garden gnomes, Mr Fisher and Mr Wheeler, find out in David Wood's delightful play for children The Ideal Gnome Expedition. Picking their way through a concrete cityscape, via alley-cats and streetlamps, a jungle for which they are altogether the wrong size, they meet all sorts of urban characters. But will they find their way back home?

The Ideal Gnome Expedition was first produced by the Liverpool Playhouse Company in December, 1980 before touring Britain in 1981.
